The only explanation I should have to give for this guy is why he's at number five and not at number one.
At 32 years old, Kobe's still "Doin' Work." He's sixth in the NBA in scoring with 25.1 points per game.
And though he's lost some of his athleticism and explosiveness, he's still finding ways to put points on the board night-in and night-out.
He's an android. He's one of the best inside scorers in the NBA. Just think about the different ways he can beat you:
—He can take you off the dribble
—He can shoot over you
—He can post you up
—He can post you up, and then shoot over you
—He can shoot the three
—He can shoot the mid range jumper
—If you foul him, he'll go to the line where he shoots 81.9%
And you can't double team him because he'll either split the double team or find the open teammate.
The ONLY reason that Kobe is number five is because the players in front of him seriously deserve their spots in front of him. Kobe is still the best player in the NBA.
